not comparing myself to winston churchill but in regard to the lyndon johnson biography we are sort of in the same boat. i have been writing about lyndon johnson so long sometimes people ask me don't you get bored? the answer is the very opposite is true. i don't think of these books as being about lyndon johnson just like a power broker was not about robert moses. just to tell the life of a famous man from the moment i first thought about doing books i thought of biographies, i thought of biographies as a way of examining the great forces that shaped the times they lived in and particularly political power. why is political power so important? we live in a democracy. we have the power of the votes we cast that ballot boxes and the more we know about political power really works not as it is taught in textbooks and high school and college but to ignore naked reality of political power the better our votes should be and the better our countries should be and lyndon johnson is the right man to examine political power. he was such a genius in the use of it, to bend washington to his wi

for denial for mr. johnson's tow car permit was it's actually two-part. it's basically the municipal code -- he has municipal code violations and it was an incomplete application. i have evidence but i will show it to you on the overhead. he applied for a new tow car application on december 14 of 2011. however, he did not submit his fingerprints as required by municipal police code section 3003(b). i called mr. johnson on his personal phone, and his current place of employment at that time, which was nelson's, as well as bay bridge, i talked to his employers, left messages for him on his phone, to submit his fingerprints to complete his application for a tow operator. after numerous requests, mr. johnson did arrive and that took until april to get him to come back in and submit his fingerprints. a criminal history check from the department of justice revealed mr. johnson had two arrests in september of 2007. and he was convicted on those in 2009. these were arrests for 23103(a) of the california vehicle code which is reckless driving and 594b1 which is vandalism. his was specifically to a

view police department, case no. 07003090, and it confirmed the arrest of johnson. i'd like to show you just a page or two of the police report, just to confirm that. if you can see here, officer revis transported and booked johnson into the main jail for 594a3b vandalism and for 23103a reckless driving. and the report is kind of long so i'll go to another page of the charges. basically mr. johnson, he was actually filmed on video, for reckless driving and he deliberately swerved side to side, causing the vehicle to roll over and he was booked into the main jail and these are his charges, 594a vandalism over 5,000. the other thing that kind of disturbs me about that is that was a 16,000 pound vehicle -- truck. let me go on. so basically mr. johnson failed to appear for numerous hearings after i called him and told him that he would have some municipal code violations. only after a letter on may 10, informing mr. johnson that he needed to appear or his application would not be processed, he did appear. i informed him at that time he was in violation of the municipal police codes. and

substantially in the coming years. miss breed, mr. everett, and miss johnson, if the city needs to generate new revenue to balance its budget, what new or increased taxes or fees should it consider? çk w miss breed, mr. everett and mr. johnson. >> london breed. i think part of what i see is a lot of waste and i also see a lot of very high salaries. i think we need to start by making sure, for example, when not going to pay for bottled water and that saved the city millions of dollars. i think we need to start looking at things, like cutting the costs on the number of vehicles we use, gas and some of the basics in order to save revenue in that capacity. we also need to look at the salaries. i know that we, as members of the board of supervisors, that is a little bit more difficult, because we get into potentially micromanaging. but in terms of fees, there are a number of ways to look at new fees, but i do think that we need to manage what we have now in a responsible way before we start to open the door to new opportunities to increasing revenue for the city. >> thank you. mr. everett. >> wh

[laughter] it -- johnson made his name in that case and went on to serve as governor of california and to spearhead a singular political movement in the state's history which was the rise of the california progressives. the progressives were, by today's definitions, a bit of a hybrid, and they are sometimes also misunderstood. they were importantly not populist. it was not a pop list movement per se. they were largely middle class men, many were -- many ran small businesses. their principal target of their reform efforts was the southern pacific whose political influence they deplored and which kept them -- wh
